In the short film the ted talk guy explains how the slaughter bots can be trained to classify the targets according to Age, Sex, Fitness, Uniform, Ethnicity. (see screen shot). This references to facial recognition technologies and attribute classification. Hence, I have added Classify/Classified because classification in terms of sorting people into types happens before the target it is killed. I also distinguished between what the drone and the FR, OR are doing. (Linda)
